IN MEMORY OP PHILLIP H MURRAY 
Tlir t'iritu Reaper brings a grievous sense of loss to us, in the death 
oM'hillip II. Murray: He was a potent, but unassuming power (or 
the atlvancement'of his people. He was one of the builders of the 
foundation upon which must stand the future destiny of the Negro 
race. ItVs&i- Hiked his life for the good of all. Those who enjoyed 
;>..nal f rit-T.-tslii^ found hiiti to he affable,, kind and indulgent 
and for this lir jrw loved slid honured. 

Ho W*a able, fouseientinus arid energetic. Ho realized the help 
he eaalabfl to hi» rSM and be never fa tillered in the effort. He was 
intelligent and broad-minded and a linguist with a power to enforce 
his idests. Although in his final days his body was racked with pain 
from a fatal sicklies* he never lost Courage and fought fop his race 
to the wid. "(irat.it him thine eternal rest, O Lord!" 



THINK TWICE BEFORE ¥00 SPEAK 
The unfortunate 'utterance* of a janitor at s gathering ofTTty en»- 
ployecs in the office of Mayor Kiel hut Saturday is to be regretted 
No one can .reasonably 'assume that the speaker was serious in hi* 
expressions. It was only the babble of a misguided tongue by an 
overetithusiaat. It «M no doubt given in n, spirit of jollity, but, com 
ing as it did at this, time, it oirfy served as food for our enemies 
The effect is a hitler experience hut a good lesson. Thbse who as- 
sume to represent the opinions of their fellowmeii should kiww their 
mission and be capable of filling it. Too often are men called upon 
to represent the race on important affairs who are either not qualified 
or have not been given time for serious thought. .The ability of 
extemporaneous discussion is a rarity that few men poaaesa. We 
hope that this burden will not be imposed upon others hereafter. We 
mui"think twice before we apeak," we. can Ul afford to humiliate 
onrsetvM. 




Y.W.C.A 



THE POWER OF EFFICIENCY 

The recent promotion of a young Colored man to a responsible po- 
sition, by a large manufacturing firnj. clearly exemplifies the po*er 
.of efficiency. It further prove* thai affleiency » master over race, 
■•^trfrir-or- T r e ed- . - a ss w awj ssas ta- Uw -nauntsia o f- pce^udifj. . U .wniigunts 
the obstacles in life, clears the pathway ts succesa and commands the 
respect of all mankind. 

The goal of efficiency cannot be reached by a single bound. It 
often requires years of struggle, patience and courage, but. as in the 
cane- of this young man, its (level op Bsesst ia appreciated. 

Oar high, schools graduate hundred* of young men and w»»*ii 
yearly, who have received the nucleus for advancement. Some con- 
tinue on through classic and scientific pursuits, some take to the pro- 
fessions while others enter the industrial field. How many, however, 
fail because of that gruelling teat, efficiency. How many fail by the 
wayside because of lack of ambition and determination. How few 
succeed. There is no room in the path of progreseaTenesa for the 
slothful, the indolent, the dreamer. 

The success of the high school boy mentioned proves that industrial 
opportunities are open to Negroes. It is a vast field almost unlimited 
and should' be an incentive to inspire energy, ambition and determina- 
tion to acquire efficiency and by so doing command a higher consider 
a ti<. a in the pursuit of life, health

Storm and Telt. 
The Master 
knew the atorm waa coming when be 
aent thrcu oat upon thnt lake to cross 
to the other aide. It may hare looked 
like fair weather to tbem. There 
may have been no hint from tha air 
at aky of tbe coming alarm. But nil 
the time he knew what they were go- 
ing ta niwt out there upon ibe water. 
And be knowa our way, lie la ac- 
quainted with every itep that Ilea be- 
fore us. We have met no storm 'that 
has not dm blown paat him and wn 
may boldly say with the Paalmlat of 
old, "Jdy time* arc In Thy hand*." 
We can hear him say na we aee toe 
.Mtorm-clouda gathering. "Aa thy day 
so aoalj bb; atrengtb 1-." Hid 
these iliwlplp* known II tin- preaence 
of Ibe storm waa no aigu iliry were

Place of Danger. 
The difficulty and danger tst tbeir 
piare was nut beennae of tbe^.tofl. 
They were doing what tbey~iSere ae> 
i'u«imiif.-i to do for they were Dsber- 
j.-'-n on that lake. Neither did their 
difficulty sod danger come from th* 
•torgL Prom their long aouunlutanee 
with that lake they would be familiar 
with morma. But tbelr danger aroae 
berantw of their loyalty to the Mas- 
ter's command. He bad told tbem 
to go to the other aide, knowing that 
U they w 1*1.1. tbey wunld go against 
wind and wave. , Tbey maynot have 
msile nibcli pe u greiw against 
atorm. but at least tbey were headed 
right In the path of obedience; It ta 
In thla petb'Of obedience that the 
Christian meeta the difficulties. 
Bnds be must sometimes go against 
the. stona of public oplniuti, the wind 
that rises In the business world 
times blows .-contrary t& him, and even 
in hla home be may meet dltta-ulUe*
